Stream Joshua James' new album before it's released

The mystically inclined crooner from American Fork, Joshua James, releases From the Top of Willamette Mountain on Tuesday, Nov. 6. But you can hear it here now.---

The Richard Swift-produced record offers up a bit more crunch, twang and rock than James has previously exhibited, which mainly comes in on the opening tracks. The hallmarks of the songwriter’s oeuvre are still there, though: a rough, yet velvety, singing of lyrics informed by a seeker’s search for the truth -- a fall to and from a higher power -- and all grounded by love. James’ ability to turn a phrase and surprise, while also leaving you something to chew on for a while after listening, serve him well on this Northplatte Records release (he is the label co-owner). The 11 tracks offer up a thematic, timely and sonically varied album, one well worth the three-year wait since his acclaimed Build Me This.

Stream it at AOL/Spinner Full Listening Party.

The CD-release party will be held on two nights at Velour Live Music Gallery in Provo, on Nov. 28 and 29.
